Almost three years ago I heard about an organization called Switch4Good. Switch4Good is a non-profit organization that is striving to create a healthier, kinder, more fair and just future for all. Founded by Olympian Dotsie Bausch, Switch4Good (S4G) is helping educate the world on the benefits of adopting a dairy-free, plant-predominant lifestyle.
The Switch4Good podcast is hosted by Dotsie Bausch and Alexandra Paul. I recall the first episode I listened to with Dr. Milton Mills titled "Dairy Is Not a Health Food". I was hooked and have been an avid follower of this dynamic duo ever since. The Switch4Good team provides a wealth of resources on their website and I would encourage you to try some of their wonderful recipes and take a look at their milk comparison calculator. I leveraged a slide deck that the group provided to deliver my first "Dairy Does A Body Good?" lecture back in 2019. As part of that lecture I provided in-person participants with an opportunity to taste a multitude of non-dairy milks. And so the "Mylk Bar" opened for business.
Since then I have had the benefit of working with my team to open the "Mylk Bar" at numerous events in the community. It is so much fun watching the kiddos and the adults explore the wide range of non-dairy milks that are available today. Those that are lucky to stop by the Mylk Bar near the end of an event even get to take home leftovers for their enjoyment.
I have learned so much as a follower of Switch4Good. I am inspired by their advocacy at the National level and their Core Values align with my own. I was humbled by this opportunity to speak with the S4G team. I have not listened to this episode because I fear that if I listen to/watch my own presentations I will be stressed about doing them in the future. I hope you have an opportunity to enjoy and while you're listening "Like and Subscribe" to the podcast or YouTube channel. Just this month the team has interviewed a stellar lineup (which makes me wonder how I got on the list!!)
Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, the author of Fiber Fueled (a great read!!)
Simon Hill, the author of The Proof is in the Plants (another great read!) and host of the awesome podcast Plant Proof (I highly recommend you subscribe)
Dave Wegener and Alishea Basson shared their amazing health journeys
Bianca and Michael Alexander shared an update on Conscious Living TV
...and the list goes on.....
I could go on and on about all the amazing guests that are on Switch4Good but my best advice is to recommend that you sign up on their website so that you can stay up-to-date on their great work. Thank you, Dotsie, for the opportunity to speak with you. You made me feel like I was chatting with a good friend. I can't wait to see what wonderful things Dotsie, Alexandra and the Switch4Good team do in 2022.
